**********A Special Hug**********

Happy Weekend everyone...Wow, what storms we've been having across the country. Last night we had teacup size hail 2 towns over, which is about 6 miles away, towns are back-to-back here, there are demarcation lines everywhere, my Mom lives next door and she is in a different town, pretty unique.

This morning I wanted to share with you a poem about something I saw and was inspired to write. I truly hope it brings a smile to your face, and perhaps makes you think a little about how through all things our Heavenly Father wants us to know He's  always there, and sends us gentle reminders, even after horrific storms, His love shines through.

I hope we all have a safe and fruitful weekend ahead, and may our Heavenly Father continue to hold us all in His loving embrace, Love hugs and prayers Patricia

A Special Hug

I saw a double rainbow,
a rare sight, so I was told.
Of that I am not certain,
but, it was a treasure to behold.

It was not just their colors,
but the distance that they spanned.
As the arms of our Father,
released His love through open hands.

They encompassed many little towns,
a gift for all to share.
Yet it was only those with open eyes,
that understood and were aware;

Of just how truly special,
this day was now to be.
For how often does our Father say,
" Hey children, here's a double hug from me"......

  5. For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you.
    That is a promise from God and the rainbow is the sign of His promise. So next time you see a rainbow remember that it His sign of His love and care for you. This is true and can be trusted.
    Very nice poem and thank you for reminding me of a very special rainbow that God gave to me as a sign of his promise. Bless you my friend, Geoff.

  8. GM Patricia, I love the poem. I love rainbows. It's so strange when I think of so many things that I notice with new eyes when they've been there all along.

    I have an old poem on my poetry blog titled "Chasing a Rainbow." It was one of my last moments w/my four legged friend before he passed.

    Thank you for thinking of me and sharing yourself w/us.

    Love and miss talking w/you.
    I love how life gets busy and "friends" surprise us w/encouraging words, e-mails, blog posts and inspirational messages to slow us down. Even if it's just for a moment, I needed that. My job and my boss are crazy... but I remain in prayer in under the mighty wings of Jesus.

    Love and hugs

  9. Hang in there Pat. Visiting to see how you doing, God bless, Geoff.

  10. You are so right in your thinking Patricia, I do enjoy this awesome is the truth of the rainbow...May your Sonday be completly engulfed in the presence of the LORD
